NGC 6133 may be the triple star listed in the table; this is near Swift's place, and it may be close enough together to have been mistaken for a nebula by him. It may also be CGCG 276-012, but this is mere guesswork. Swift has not left us much to go on -- the NGC description is copied correctly from his original list.
Of the three other galaxies found the same night by Swift, NGC 6262 (which see) is also missing. NGC 6206 and NGC 6279 are close to their nominal positions, with no significant systematic offset.
The RNGC (Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a nonexistent object. Their coded description reads NF S.
